"It would look better with a wick in it."

Daenerys Targaryen, First of Her Name, Breaker of Chains, Mother of Dragons, Impersonator of Legolas, Constipated Galadriel and Leftover John Travolta.

These are just some of the titles bestowed on a new waxwork figure of Emilia Clarke's "Game Of Thrones" character, unveiled in Dublin's National Wax Museum on Wednesday.

When Irish news site Joe.ie posted pictures of the effigy asking for opinions, it didn't take long for the reviews to start rolling in.

Many thought it looked more like Orlando Bloom's elfin character from Lord Of The Rings, or indeed any of Tolkiens other male elves, including Thanduil and Haldir.

Others were less forgiving again, citing Hulk Hogan and even Cristiano Ronaldo's infamously tortured golden bust at Madeira Airport.

The costume shop-standard wig drew much of the ridicule, but the unruly eyebrows — which might have looked more at home on a feral wildling — came in for their fair share of scrutiny.

"I wouldn’t be tagging @emiliaclarke in this. It looks you planted @martinscorsese eyebrows on @officialannielennox in that video 'There Must Be An Angel'," one wrote on Instagram.

"This looks like Katie Hopkins after a night out," another opined.

There wasn't much defense or of the artwork among the Irish, who are typically as non-discriminative as they are merciless in their abuse.

All joking aside, there is a precedence of using random heads for "Game of Thrones" purposes at the museum; an earlier GOT exhibit replicated the Hall Of Faces from the House Of Black And White, and simply filled it with spare wax heads they had lying around.

Ireland has close ties to the HBO epic: much of the show was filmed on the island, While Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Aidan Gillen (Littlefinger), Ciaran Hinds (Mance Rayder) Michael McElhatton (Roose Bolton) and even Jack Gleeson (Joffrey Baratheon) all hail from there.
